2/6 MN Reads: Minneapolis Madams: The Lost History of Prostitution on the Riverfront

We talked with author and historian Penny Peterson, about her book "Minneapolis Madams: The Lost History of Prostitution on the Riverfront." Peterson looks at the nineteenth-century ecosystem of brothels and streetwalkers with a keen eye for political hypocrisy, sexual double standards,racial prejudice, and gender-driven economics.
